In this weeks episode of NZPETeachercast I have the pleasure of sitting down with Australia’s most entertaining Science teacher (an unofficial title I have given him) – Pete Whiting! I love teachers who game, and Pete is a die hard gamer from way back. We spend a good amount of time discussing the implementation of gamification with his classes but we also delve into his passion for flipped learning and touch on his success using a Genius Hour approach with his students.
Check out the links below to find out more about Pete and explore some of the things we discussed in the episode:
